    I'm fairly new to scripting but am happy to learn. I've done a couple bash scripts for server backups.

    Thanks

    This one I do know just add sleep 30 to your script, like so:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    sleep 30

    I think that the script that Boondoklife wrote above is capable of doing that or you can just use gigolo: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...16&postcount=3

    NOTE:
    Please make sure you are running this as a startup application.
    If you are having issues please change the DEBUG=0 line to DEBUG=1 and post the output of the log file from "/tmp/gnome-samba-mount-startup.log"
    Boondok,

    Could you post the script again? The provided link is dead...

    Thanks in advance,

    Updated the script for yas:

    CHANGES:
    1) Added a wait variable, if you need the script to wait for a connection or what ever just replace the 0 with a higher number. This will let the script wait on its first run for that many seconds before continuing.

    2) No need to change the username. Now the script will pull the current username and use it as part of the drive mapping. This should be more effective in a campus/domain environment.

    3) I also added a Link to a startup item you can use to make the drive mappings occur for all users.

    Let me know how it works out for yas

    running the script in a terminal gives

    gnome-samba-mount-startup: 12: function: not found

    that would be 'domount'

    here's the log
    Ran as: cmallam

    Polling shares.

    There is a file in tmp called smbloginmounts and it is a zero byte file. Looking at the script, i am assuming that the NAS would be mounted under my home as SHARE or something like that. Clicking on 'Computer' on the desktop opens to reveal only the local harddrives and the DVD Drive.

    Do you have any ideas?

    It actually shows up as network folders in computer. Can you attach your script.

    Re: Map Windows Shares Permanently with GVFS

    i think i found the problem. i went back to the first post in this thread, and followed thru the steps. turns out gvfs was not installed. once i installed that, everything works fine.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hmmm, this still doesn't solve my original problem, which is that when i open Geegie (GQView) to find and edit pictures, it still doesn't show any of these remote drives. Guess i have to play with fstab again.

    Thought I had that listed in the script, thanks for catching that. I have updated it with the requirement of gvfs.
